Homemade Blueberry Donuts with Sweet Ricotta Filling
These blueberry filled donuts present the perfect amount of sweetness in any breakfast or dessert. They are great by themselves or with a warm cup of coffee.
Cut the dough ball into 14 equal size pieces and roll each into a ball.
Set aside on a floured sheet tray for 30 minutes so the dough can rise.
In a medium-sized pot, add vegetable oil and heat slowly to approximately 350 degrees F.
Add dough balls to the oil using a slotted spoon, roll the balls around in the oil until they turn golden brown. Cook time approximately 3-4 minutes each side.
Remove from oil and place on a paper towel on a plate.
In a separate bowl, mix ricotta and 3 tablespoons of the blueberry jelly together until thoroughly blended.
Fill a pastry bag or large Ziploc bag with mixture. If using a plastic bag, cut a tip off of one of the corners to pipe the filling through.
Using a paring knife or kitchen scissors, cut an X into each donut going half way in.
Fill the donuts with the ricotta mixture, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
- After the donuts are taken out of the pan roll them in sugar to add even more delicious flavor.
